Another Year/Another Acknowledgment: Lincoln Center recognizes the hard work and dedication of its Counsel’s Council, including Wildes & Weinberg P.C. Managing Partner Michael Wildes.
Michael Wildes serves of counsel to Lincoln Center regarding their U.S. Immigration needs. The 16 acre complex, “the world’s leading performing arts center, is home to the 11 resident arts organizations that represent the highest standards of excellence in symphony, opera, chamber music, theater, dance, film, and arts education”. As a boutique law firm that specializes in U.S. immigration and nationality law for the past five decades, Michael Wildes and the staff of Wildes & Weinberg continue to service the immigration needs of prominent American and International firms, banks, industrial, financial and manufacturing concerns and law. Moreover, they have a distinguished clientele and have done substantial immigration work for performing artists, directors, writers, models, actors/actresses, athletes, fine artists, art dealers, curators, and literary agents including Joe Cocker, Johnny Rotten, Paloma Picasso, numerous Miss Universes, supermodel Giselle Bundchen and Sarah Brightman, the world’s bestselling female classical artist of the twenty-first century. For many years Michael Wildes has been a member of Lincoln Center’s Counsels’ Council. As a patron of the arts, Michael Wildes enjoys this role immensely and thanks Lincoln Center for their gracious printed acknowledgment: “Lincoln Center is extremely grateful for the pro bono legal services provided by Wildes & Weinberg”.
Recently, Michael met with Lauren Ezrol Klein who recently began her role as Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary at Lincoln Center and presented her with his recently released book, Safe Haven in America: Battles to Open the Golden Door.
Whether it’s the long-term impact of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on immigration policy or the latest twist in separating children from migrants seeking asylum, Michael Wildes’ opinion has been sought by a range of news organizations, from Fox News to CNN. He speaks with the hard-won experience of nearly a quarter-century on the front lines of the immigration controversy, as an attorney and as managing partner of the premier immigration law practice in the country. His views have not always been popular – at times he’s had to back up his lawyer’s suit with a bulletproof vest – but they’re never dull.
With the publication of Safe Haven in America: Battles to Open the Golden Door, Wildes doesn’t travel over well-worn legal and political terrain. He presents case histories that read more like espionage thrillers, populated with KGB agents, nuclear whistle-blowers, and even accused terrorists fighting for their lives as well as legal standing in the U.S. But he also tells human stories – tales of children kidnapped to foreign countries in bitter divorce battles; families all but destroyed by the attack on the World Trade Center; a hero’s shabby treatment after standing up to terror; and a young DACA recipient becoming the target of a hate attack.
From managing media expectations with bombshell political revelations to the day-to-day demands of running a practice with office in four states, Wildes presents a look behind the scenes of one of America’s perennial political flash-points, along with startling disclosures from some of his most riveting cases.
